Beard naysayers beware. A new report suggests that beards are a good thing. “While both dead sexy and totally awesome, beards are also a boon to your overall health.”
According to the study there are several benefits to sporting a beard:
- Protection from the sun.
- Reduced pollen inhalation.
- Shielding from the wind which keeps men “looking young and fresh-faced.”
- Less acne and possible bacterial infections associated with shaving.
With Richard’s beard soon to make a return for additional filming for The Hobbit, this study seems like a sign! Richard is meant to be bearded. There’s just no arguing with science. 😉
